Emerging Technology competition now open

The Emerging Technologies competition is the Royal Society of Chemistry’s annual innovation initiative which turns promising ideas into commercial reality. The competition which is now in its fourth year is open to students who want to use their scientific knowledge to solve real life issues, which will benefit society.

The competition aims to accelerate the commercialisation of innovative technologies in the following categories: health & wellbeing, energy & environment and materials. There are three prizes and benefits for entrants in each of the categories.

Entry to the competition is free and is open to small companies, universities, and research institutions, who can apply using the online application form. The Emerging Technologies competition is interested in ideas, at any stage of development, from across the UK and Europe.

By entering the competition, you will retain full control and ownership of your idea.  This does mean that the technology present must be yours, as entry to the competition counts as public disclosure.

Shortlisted entrants will be invited to present their ideas to a panel of expert judges at the competition final, taking place at Chemistry Means Business 2016 in London. This is a high-profile two-day event which brings chemistry-using professionals together. 

Previous winners have raised their profile as well as securing key investment from follow-up funding as a result of their competition success.
